Llamas & Alpacas


Both live in fields not a mile from our house! Today we set out to discover the difference :^)..
Apparently Alpacas are smaller and are not used as pack animals as Llamas are. They are used for their wool only.

Portland Youth Philharmonic


Saturday we went to see Carrie & Nick play with the Portland Youth Philharmonic Orchestra. A great performance including Gustav Mahler's very long & complicated 5th Symphony. Chiyoko had promised to pinch me if I dozed off but she didn't need to :^)
